I've cancelled my sky TV, broadband and phone package.
I don't want any TV package, just broadband and phone line.

Do I need any information other than my landline number from sky to start somewhere else?

I've never cancelled sky for 13 years and I can go without BB and phone line whilst I look for deals but I wanted to ask if it'll be easier to swap or set a new provider before the end of the contract with sky? Or doesn't it matter.
Thanks for any information.

    If the Sky cancellation is in effect ,a new supplier won't be able to place an order - so it will delay the changeover plus you may not be able to keep your old phone number if that's important to you.
